Departmental Workshops - Structured professional development activities  

Departmental Workshops- Circle Theorems

These workshops are written to provide your mathematics team with structured professional development you can deliver in-house utilizing all members' expertise and knowledge. We believe 3 – 6 modules per year could be an ideal balance.

This module explores the vocabulary of geometry and the need to understand and complete formal proofs. The first activity proposes the creation of a glossary of geometric terms associated with the circle to help students to understand unfamiliar language. As the activities progress, the glossary of terms expands.

I always give examples to my class of practical applications of the topic they are about to start. I can’t seem to think of anything to do with Circle Theorems. eg. Angle at centre equals twice angle at circumference on the same chord. Do you have any ideas?

Many thanks if you can help.
